Rooted in Nature!

Hello Everyone, I hope the day is being good to you and you're enjoying some lovely sunshine. It's been another glorious day here, although it was raining quite a bit throughout the night.

Thank you for the lovely comments on my previous card, and for your continued visits to my blog, it's very kind of you.

Well it's another short post from me today with a card I made away last year and hadn't posted, so I thought I would post it now and enter into, http://allsortschallenge.blogspot.com/2019/09/week-538-trees-and-leaves.html
No the best of photos sorry about that, the images are from Rooted in Nature stamp and die set from SU, and unfortunately, I can't remember the make of the embossing folder I've used in the background, but it's all trees. , and a bit of bakers twine. As the card was for a man there are no sparkly bits.

Let me tell you that I enjoyed Downton Abbey, Alistair was very well behaved, but he devoured his chocolate before the film had even started, but he was very quiet throughout the film.
I would recommend it. Maggie Smith as ever was wonderful, some fabulous lines and the costumes were stunning. I'll say no more about it so that it's not spoiled for you.

Right that's me, I'm going back to the TV news, I've been glued to it today with all that's being happening with the Supreme Court's ruling.....well it's not over yet, guess the Fat Lady's still signing, we are certainly living in interesting times.

Take care everyone and see you soon,

This is lovely. I am waiting for Downton to come out to buy, prefer to watch it at home with no distractions.

Hi Kate,
such a very super card and love the glittery leaves as well as that tree stamp they are very gorgeous.
As you say a good card for maybe a fella too.
I have been told the film is as good as the series if not slightly better.
Can't wait to see it.
Are you watching The Capture on a Tuesday night on BBC it's very good can recomend if you are not watching.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi, Kate! We have not seen the new Downton Abbey movie - it's hard for me to sit still that long - but I do want to see it! Even though I'm not in the UK, I, too, have been waiting for the ruling! It must be so hard on all of you! Thanks for sharing the lovely leafy background with your tree card today! It's beautiful! hugs, de
